All our veggies here at CSA Newark are grown by John Krueger on his farm in Andover, NJ (about an hour north/west of Newark). To learn more about John and his farm, read here in his own words:
Read on below for all the details on this years Winter-Stock-Up-Share from John (what veggies are included, the weight, the price, etc). If you would like to receive this years Winter-Stock-Up-Share:
• current CSA members can simply drop off a check at our pick-up location next Wednesday
• non-members can still get a Winter-Stock-Up-Share: send an e-mail to eve at csanewark dot com for details on how to get on the list.
But now, here are the details on the stock-up-share from our farmer John himself:

An e-mail with detailed information on the FARM VISIT (June 8th), our CSA Newark 2013 initial MEET-N’-GREET (May 31st) and more just went out to all members, and we can not wait for the veggie deliveries to start (June 12th).
We still accept additional members for the season. If you are interested to join or if you have questions, drop an e-mail to eve at csanewark dot com or to stephanie at csanewark dot com.

If you would like to get a half share, but do not know who to split it with: let us hook you up! Just send an e-mail to eve at csanewark dot com and we will match you with others looking for a veggie-share-partner as we hear from them.
If you would like to split a share, please also keep the following in mind: Continue reading

Stock up for the winter with this one time end-of-season yummieness from the fields of Starbrite farm. It will be here at the drop off spot for pick-up next Wednesday (21 NOV 12, the day before Thanksgiving).
